The Pilot Digitization Project (April 2013 to April 2015) was a joint venture between the Government Information Services Limited (GISL) and The University of the West Indies (UWI) at St. Augustine, projected to establish appropriate systems and workflows for the digital ingestion and cataloguing of broadcast video tapes that are in the custody of GISL.
Key Pilot Outputs:
